Apple patent technology anti-snooping technology that would stop the police from being able to track mobile phone user locations and messages
- Innovation would block the use of Stingray & # 39; which acts as mobile phones to track user sites or listen to calls
- Some UK police forces Stingrays (also known as IMSI catchers) also use
- The encrypted proposal will end the unique ID of the phones while traveling around a network

Apple is developing anti-snooping technology that prevents police forces tracking mobile phone users' sites or read their messages.
The mobile phone and technology giant are patented in a way to send the signs between mobile towers and users' phones, while being protected by authorities.
Innovation, reported by The Telegraph, would block the Stingray & # 39; known as acting as mobile phones and are used to track or listen to user sites on their calls.

Some use Stingrays police forces, also called IMSI police forces, but their amount of use was not shown.

They can punish phone settings and listen to calls or messages.

Their use is controversial, as well as targeting suspected phones, they collect data from the thousands of other devices at the same time, which could be seen as a violation of privacy.
Hackers could use stingrays to employ public data.
Apple's proposal in the encryption patent would end with the unique phone ID as it goes across a network.
The ID, known as a recognized mobile phone subscriber, has been deleted under encryption and therefore a leakage leak device is likely to be protected.
However, the encryption would not cause the content of the messages, but it would be harder to track the engine they came.
Technology is likely to welcome the technology if it should be developed, but the police and security services can say terrorists can plan terrorism to plan attacks and allow criminals to immersion.

The company fought the FBI during 2016 over their quest for Syed Farook's encrypted phone, which killed 14 people in San Bernardino shooting.

They also criticized British legislation which could weaken encryption.
It is unclear whether the new Apple patent, filed in 2017 and published in February, will be used in future technology.
